The European Union wants to have a law for drones ready within two years

drones European Union

Many are the companies that feel the need to emigrate to other countries to continue developing and even implementing their projects related to autonomous drones. With this in mind and especially taking into account that it is increasingly common to see drivers enjoying this hobby in an open space in the European Union have decided to allocate more resources to have a new regulation developed before 2019.

As you surely know, the European Union is not the only one that has seen the urgent need to have to legislatively regulate the presence of this type of aircraft in the skies of half the world, without going any further United StatesLast summer, it already issued a series of rules that limited and regulated the use of these drones weighing more than 25 kilograms for commercial, educational and scientific purposes.

The European Union sees the need to create rules for the use of drones before 2017.

One more example of the need for this regulation and of how it seems to arrive too late in the European Union we have in China, a country in which there is also a regulation for drones since last May of this year 2017. Since then it is mandatory for pilots to register those of their drones whose weight is greater than 250 grams when previously it was only mandatory to register drones whose weight was greater than 7 kilograms.

Among the proposals of this new legislation, it is worth mentioning that those in charge intend to create a community and automated space control of these air vehicles that fly up to 150 meters high so that they can keep the use of these devices in a safe place.

To this we have to add that the European Union has already begun to work together with all the countries of the Union and even with the industry itself in order to develop safety standards that cover as much as possible, including those basic community safety rules.
